Several operations buildings on the south side of the island were damaged. The only guest-facing facility involved was one of several public restrooms.

Princess said guest facilities have been inspected and reported safe and operational. In the staff-only operations areas, work is under way to restore the affected buildings and equipment.

Local firefighters and island staff extinguished the blaze in approximately one hour. No injuries were reported.
